It is a new year and it feels like everyone is talking about setting a goal, resolution or vow to make a change. In theory, it is great! I am all about goal setting and personal growth. Personally, setting too many goals can be overwhelming. Heck – the whole process can be over whelming!
When I worked at Lululemon, the company provided a very helpful goal setting worksheet that started off setting long term goals for your personal, professional and physical growth. Interested in learning about how to set more intentional goals? Check out this goal setting worksheet here.
I took the first week of January off to really evaluate how I did in 2017. I asked my self questions like: What did I like? What could have been better? What were the highlights and lowlights? Where do I want to be? How do I get there? Are donuts really a want or a need? (the struggle is so real).
10 Year Goal
- Professional: Running and operating my own business (TBD). Continue to teach yoga part-time.
- Physical: Maintain my daily training and practice holding 15% body fat
- Personal: Raise kid(s) that are going to be contributors to society and save enough for an annual vacation.
5 Year Goal
- Professional: In two years, come up with a business plan and then implementing the plan. Continue to teach yoga part-time.
- Physical: Work out regularly requiring one hour of cardio daily and strength train three times per week.
- Personal: Be financially prepared to have/start a family (I know there is never enough money but I want to try). Promote healthy eating and continue to save.
1 Year Goal
- Professional: Start reviewing my strengths, weaknesses and what I would like to focus on if/when I have my own business. Continue to teach yoga part time three to four times a week.
- Physical: Sweating at least one hour a day, five times a week (Yoga/Swimming/Running) + to hold 15-20% body fat
- Personal: Meal prep low fat meals on Sundays so that I can bring breakfast and home lunch 4 times per week. This will help me save money and support my physical goals.
NOTE: Once your goals are set, they are not set in stone 100%. You as a person will grow and change and so will your vision/goals. This year, I plan to focus on searching for my purpose, strengths and what truly inspires me. Wishing you all an amazing 2018. The best is yet to come!
